And if you paid attention to IFTA along the way when choosing your fueling locations it may have been upward of $2600 savings.
That is an item many overlook.
I've work for a few carriers that figured and PAID fuel taxes.
We just bought the cheapest pump price.
Today at 10 mpg+ and carrying 225 gallons I can buy when I want more so then when I have to.
I carry an additional 100 gallons of untaxed fuel for the reefer and APU.
Admittedly, IFTA was the last thing on my mind. Although buying 1/2 as much fuel as most others, we obviously paid 1/2 of what most others paid to IFTA.
You gotta remember we had a different "mission" from the "normal" owner-operator like you guys. Our goal was to get the very best mpg possible, in real-world conditions, delivering freight, and document it. We had a hardware device and accompanying software that took a "snapshot" of the Cummins ECM every 60 seconds. From west of Chicago to Tracy, California alone, we had 2250 lines of data recorded, for 2250 minutes of real-world trucking operation.
But for you guys, absolutely, it pays to be cognizant of your IFTA fueling locations.
